Gabriola Island
Welcome! I’m glad you’re here and hope you enjoy this brief glimpse of some of my many works of art. So many more to be seen at

I've been painting and teaching watercolours for over 30 years with a growing following of students in spring and fall semester classes.
Subjects are diverse but capturing the warmth and play of light on local natural beauty is my most important mandate.

Other artistic ventures include public and private murals, volunteering for school art programs, community workshops, Professional Development seminars, B.C. Ferries Artist and Speaker program and 23 on-line workshops on the Skillshare platform.
Mentioning my creating has been on a hiatus might be more transparent. Teaching has been minimal since this “C “ word happened.The last 8 weeks I have been chief care giver to my daughter, grandson (and of course their dog).The upside is I get to develop a great relationship with my grandson and oh the inspiration to paint children has begun!
